I was lucky enough to get the whole band except Sverker down for an interview before the band played Glasgow’s Ivory Blacks last Tuesday night. Carl answered most of the questions, with some input from Per, Tobias and Dan.
Discussion focussed on the current line-up, a bit on the history of the band and their subject matter. Mainly, though, I wanted to talk about their current album Neogenesis, which comes complete with a hardback book, and the recent video released to go along with it.
If you enjoyed the video for “Metamorphosis”, then clap your hands in delight that there should be one for “Oracle” along soon. Indeed, if the band had their own way there would have been a whole film based on the concept album!
As I type this up, I have the album spinning in the CD player and it’s a great listen. When I get the time, I’ll go through the novella (written by Carl) as well.
Thanks for the band for their time, and my apologies for getting the recording up here. It’s been a busy week including two birthdays in the family!
